Shorter Upgrade Cycle of Smartphones Driving Demand for Refurbished and Used Mobile Phones

Smartphones have changed the world remarkably in a short period of time. They have become central to people’s lives, from communication to commerce and digital content consumption. However, the recycling rate for mobile products is less than other major electronic categories because most people throw away used devices or simply hoard them.

In most developed countries such as the U.S., Germany, France, U.K., and Italy, people are very tech-savvy and always prefer advanced features and technologies in their electronic gadgets. Due to a shorter upgrade cycle of most mobile phones, people in these countries are not willing to spend a significant amount on new mobile phones. Due to this, they are moving toward refurbished and used mobile phones.

Refurbished and used mobile phones with advanced technologies and features at low costs are attracting consumers in most of the developed as well as developing countries. Thus, shorter upgrade cycle of mobile phones and growing interest of individuals in advanced mobile phones at low costs are forecasted to fuel the growth of the global refurbished and used mobile phones market over the years ahead.
